So I recently bought this 1955 Hobbit on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Hobbit-7t ... 53D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc.
(Seemed like a decent price.)

I had a question about the dust jacket.

It is a 7th impression book with an 8th impression jacket.

Tolkienbooks states, "Jackets printed by J. Howell*

* 2,860 Allen & Unwin jackets were printed. The Houghton Mifflin jackets were printed late in August as they were not ordered with the folded and collated copies. Over 2,000 were printed, with half being held over for the next impression of the book."

So if I'm understanding this footnote correctly, this is one of the copies that was "held over for the next impression of the book."

Thanks in advance for the clarification.

Josh

Laurel,

I bought one of the previous copies for $250 that wasn't damaged. Not sure who bought the other.

Not a bad price, though the corner's damaged... Not sure how that affects the value.
